My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

Thursday Thirteen #14
Thirteen Reasons this has been a Horrible Week

*This will explain why I have not been on since Saturday*

1. Kayla came down with another stomach virus Sunday night
2. Which meant another ER Visit Monday night for Dehydration
3. The ER was super busy, so we were there from 9pm to 2am
4. Who knows what we’ll catch from being at the ER
5. I woke up at 6:30am on Sunday and didn’t go to sleep until 3am on Tuesday morning (I was up for 44.5 hours straight) - I'm REALLY tired
6. She had a relapse at 2am Wed morning which turned into an 8 hour relapse
7. She had to be given her 3rd dose of Zofran to stop the vomiting
8. I am now worried about her weight, as she has no weight to spare…
9. If she starts up again, she’ll need to be tested for a urinary tract infection
10. This means she’ll need a catheter :(
11. We had an ice storm Tuesday night into Wednesday
12. Alysa, J and I all have colds with yucky coughs – Kayla is now getting it too (she can’t win this week)
13. I am waiting for the rest of us to get this virus…

I wondered where you were. I thought maybe your computer crashed again. Now reading this, I wish that were the reason you weren't here. I'll say a prayer that Kayla feels better soon. Poor baby (and poor you too!) Try to stay healthy and get some sleep if you can.

What a week you have had!! Oh my! I hope think things improve soon. Try to keep positive and TRY to get the rest you need. I know that is hard. A mother's job is never done...

I hope this Thursday is better than the past week!

We all have the flu here. I hope Kayla and everyone there gets feeling better soon.

Oh goodness. What a hard week! And it doesn't matter if you know your child is going to be okay, a trip to the ER is always dramatic and traumatic.

Sending you good thoughts!
